    Noises he is not familar with will usually cause them to 'freeze in place' or run for the hills.  Yes, he will run away if he is not in some sort of enclosure.  He might get scared, might see another rabbit - anything - a new dog in the yard and he will run.  He wants to live and if he is outside, he needs a safe area there also.

    You may have to take her to the vet. But the first thing I would do is talk to the people you got them from. Tell them the condition and ask them what they know.

    Thank you very much.....

    Sounds like she might have gotten her foot caught on some wire or underneath something and that pulled out her nail and possibly splayed leg. I think you would know if the leg is broken as she wouldn't be moving it but if splayed, it should be wrapped as will be sore. If she isn't just fine in two days - vet is definitely called for unless you know how to rap it and for sure can tell, not broken.

    Well I just got her and so I don't know how her leg got hurt but I can rap it. Thank you for your help........

    I have a bunny too and his nail came off as well. I was very worried at first but then a friend told me she has a rabbit and said if it starts bleeding, your supposed to stuff it with corn starch! And, the leg problem, you probually want to get a vet to look at that. Hope i could help :)

    I think it would be a good idea to go to the vet if it looks any worse in a day or 2. I would think the nail could get better on its own unless infected. But if it is show quality it can not be showed.

    Start locally and see if any breeders near you ---- or any breeders that know who is breeding the netherland dwarf. Look in the papers classifieds, talk to a pet store, look on Craigs list. Look up Netherland dwarf breeders on the Internet. You just have to get started and you will find one.

    Hello Hailey, I do however we are located in Macon Georgia and I am not sure what shipping would cost. My bunnies have always been local pick up so I'm a little skittish about shipping a baby bunny.
  • Matt Geiger - 2012-04-29
    I have recently come across some netherland dwarf bunnies that would cost under your requested $$

I am thinking of getting a neverland dwarf rabbit. Is it a good idea to get one or should I get two? Are they likely to get on together if I get two females. Will they still be friendley if I have two. Would appreciate advice on this.
Best regards.

    Sure, two females get along just fine. Two males usually do not unless they are neutered. By getting two, they would have someone to be with you can't be there and they will still make a good companion for you. Of course the more time you spend with them, the more affectionate they are,
  • Alex Norman - 2012-05-22
    Do not put two males or two females together because they will fight. Have a female and a male that's what I have done but I got the male first and had him neutered and then got her and had her spayed when she was settled in and old enough.

    i suggest that you send it straight to a vet immediately but choose your vet carefully. Not all vets are qualified to treat rabbits.

I have owned 3 netherlands and can confirm that they are the sweetest. Some people are afraid that they are a little nervous, but I think it has to do with the household they are raised in. I am a very unorthodox mommy and the 2 guys I have now behave just like my babies. We are so attached, my little Pearl goes to the door to see me off to work. Yes, my little guys are "free range" bunnies. I have well bunny proofed my house and they are free to roam all day. My little guys love to play kissy face and are always gooming my hairline and eyebrows. I can even sometimes ask for a kiss and Pearl will stand up and plant one on my lips. It is all about the love and security they feel in their home.

    It depends on where you live. Do some research about the breeders and..the breed. Make sure your 9 y/o is responsible and doesn't want a cuddle bunny, since netherlands aren't the cuddliest breed. If she/he does want a cuddler, I would say a lop. :)

I have a Netherland dwarf and she has the sniffles. Does anyone have an idea what I could do for her sniffles?

    Best guess would be allergy or respiratory infection. Have you changed to a different bedding, food or litter just recently? If you have you could try changing back. If your little guy is the least bit lethargic or not eating as usual, then I would get him to the vet as you will probably need some antibiotics.

    I would take it to the vet she might have snuffels.

I have fallen in love with Netherland Dwarfs when I was only about eight years old. My first rabbit that I fell in love with was Cocoa who has passed away March of 2005. My next rabbit is named Inky and I just love her with all my heart. I fell in love with this breed and changing is just out of the story. My rabbit is very sweet, lovable, loyal, and commpassionate. Although the Netherland is known for its bad temperment, I totally disagree; my rabbit loves snuggles and loves to explore more than anything in the whole, wide world!
